  • This house is architecturally quite lovely and representative of its era. The furnishings and household items on display give a clear sense of what life was like at the time. Definitely worth a visit.  more »
  • We took a great guided tour of this wealthy families home from 100-200 years ago (I forget the actual age). What a different way of life! The home is not occupied now.  more »
  • Loved it. Beautiful house, the tour guide really helped us in imagining and realizing the worth and value of this traditional and authentic Albanian home. Guide was knowledgeable and quite informed about the house and it's rooms, their purposes and the role each room played in the Albanian history back then. I truly appreciated the history lesson and learnt a lot. I do hope that the house is maintained in it's capacity and that the story keeps being told. Our guide was awesome. The view from the house was breathtaking and beautiful. I truly loved it.
  • Another epic house in gjirokaster. Came on a subday in January opens around 10, 11(sign says earlier but its winter) so we came back after seeing zekate house. A fellow was doing some gsrdening and came down to give us a tour. Amazing place. It has two armouries, and multiple gun turrets to defend against intruders. The rest you will find out when you get here. Very worth seeing. Amazing ottoman style mansion. 200 lek entry
